Make your next birthday something special

What’s so special about birthdays anyway? Everyone has one, and they keep coming year after year after year. But there is one great way to make your next birthday truly special. Extraordinary, even. Forgo the gifts and fancy dinners and ask your people to give the life-changing — even life-saving — gift of clean water instead. Don’t worry — you can still have birthday cake. 

Not your birthday yet? Just tell us when it is, and as the big day approaches we’ll send you a reminder to set up your campaign. Easy peasy.

Birthdays are a gift

One thing's for sure: every trip around the sun is something to be grateful for. Every year 1.4 million lives are lost to the water crisis - which means in places without clean water, making it to your your next birthday is never a given. Your fundraiser can help change that.

EASY AS 1, 2, 3

Here’s how it works

In the time it takes to listen to Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday,” you can have your birthday campaign all set up and ready to go.

You’re getting even more generous with age. Tell us your birthday and we’ll be sure to remind you when it’s time to start your campaign.

Birthdays are changing the world.

You may recognize Lory. That’s because he’s a bit of a charity: water legend. After learning about the millions of people who spend hours each week collecting water that isn’t even safe to drink, Lory decided to do something. 

For his sixth birthday, Lory decided to give up presents. Instead, he asked his family and friends to donate $6 to help build clean water projects. With a little effort and a couple of YouTube videos, he raised $2,386. Six years old, and he provided clean water to nearly 60 people. What can you do with your birthday?
